    Flight of Dance, FREE classes (7-11 years)

    Calling all young people...
    How might YOU achieve the impossible, break out of your comfort zone, do something unexpected, change what people think - simply through a movement or action.
    The workshops and final piece will be inspired by Croydon Airport Society and archives, under the direction of Dog Kennel Hill Project and delivered by InUnity, to use dance and tell the story of the local area.
    Keeley and her team will teach fun and energetic dances based on key parts of Roundshaw's history to be performed on 27th October 2015 and every class will be FREE.
    We will think about the place and time that we live in and the sorts of things that might stop us from achieving amazing things. (Just think - there was a time when the thought of humans flying was impossible and now we have been to the moon). Who can say what your limits are when you don't yet know what you are capable of?
    We are inviting young people in Sutton to join this project and work with Inunity Dance and Dog Kennel Hill Project
